What Is It?
Positive psychology focuses on enhancing well-being and the conditions and processes that contribute to the flourishing and optimal functioning of people, groups and institutions.
Why Is It Important?
Studies have shown that “feeling good” is not only a temporary experience – it also helps build enduring personal resources. Positive emotions enhance your functioning at all levels: cognitive, affective and physical. Many studies have established a correlation between positive emotions and higher wages, creativity, big picture thinking, problem solving, physical health and work engagement.
